Sorry, Simon Pegg, but Edgar Wright has reportedly found his next leading man/D&D character name in Ansel Elgort. According to Variety, the The Fault in Our Stars and Divergent actor has beat out the likes of Logan Lerman and The Force Awakens' John Boyega for the starring role in Wright's Baby Driver. It's said the plot focuses on a getaway driver, a young phenom that "relies on the beat of his personal soundtrack to be the best in the game," who gets involved in crime lord's doomed heist that "threatens his life, love and freedom." So keep in mind, next time someone is describing a European auteur's film focusing on a getaway driver, a super cool soundtrack, and a life-threatening heist-gone-wrong tied to a love interest and a mob boss, somehow they might not be talking about Drive.
